New Course Starting soon on Thursday evenings
Many Christmases ago, a little girl who was reading the prayers of the faithful at a parish Epiphany Mass listed the Magi’s gifts to the Christ child in Matthew’s Nativity fable. They included, she told us, “gold, Frankenstein, and myrrh”. It was a happy slip and a good story, which can still alert us to our own ancient, ingrained (mis)readings – via atonement, expiation and blood sacrifice – of the Passion and Resurrection accounts that those three symbolic presents have traditionally prefigured. Can a child’s lisp in the last millennium restore us to the smell of frankincense in this year’s Holy Week?
